The Eastern Snake-necked Terrapin, also called Eastern Long-necked Turtle, is one of several "snake-necked" terrapin species all native to Australia-Pacific.
The neck, when extended, can reach as long as the body. When withdrawn, it is withdrawn sideways into the shell. All are carnivorous.
The Eastern is native to slow moving rivers and ponds of much of Eastern Australia. It has powerful webbed, clawed feet for swimming, digging
and tearing. It can also excrete a foul-smelling musk as defence.
